The Haida are a sovereign tribe living on what the Canadians call Queen Charlotte Island. As an elder, Lavine White believes in sharing and gentleness, but sees that these values common to indigenous people have encouraged white people to take advantage of them. Since becoming the first woman elected to lead her people, she has become very outspoken-as she recounted in two speeches before the Indigenous Women’s Network conference in 1994. Producer: Agnes Patak, KMUD-FM.
